Teresa Pollman

Teresa Pollman

Featured in Chapter Three: Motherhood
Teresa Pollman is the Owner of IMD Image and Modeling Development, which is located in Medford, Oregon. Teresa has changed the opinions and ideas that people from Southern Oregon once held regarding the modeling industry. She has made dreams come true for her models and actors by stressing quality versus quantity and by using personal relationships as a foundation.

Teresa moved to Fresno, California when she was 10 years old but moved back to beautiful Southern Oregon at the end of 1997. Teresa started modeling during her high school years in Fresno, California. She continued modeling until she graduated from Fresno State with a business Management Degree. While in college, Teresa also worked for an agency as a Director. She then opened IMD in January 1998.

IMD functions as a modeling and talent agency as well as a career development center. IMD develops its models and actors to work nationally and internationally. IMD's models have been placed in New York, LA., San Francisco, Miami, Chicago, Japan, Israel, Taiwan, Austria, Milan and Australia. Placing models with other agencies around the world has really put Medford on the map in the fashion industry. It just goes to show that Teresa is very selective about who she represents.

One of the reasons that Teresa has been so successful is that she always maintains her integrity and high standards for excellence. She demands that her staff be just as dedicated as she is to developing young people into successful professionals. Teresa has committed herself to uphold personal relationships with all her models, actors and their families.  She loves working with children and giving back to her local community.

Teresa’s flare for recognizing potential and developing young people into successful professionals was recognized when IMD received the Lifetime Achievement Award at the IMTA, International Modeling and Talent Association convention in New York City. IMTA is the largest and most prestigious modeling and talent convention in the world.  Teresa only chooses the cream of the crop to participate in traveling to the IMTA Convention. IMD believes in each one of it's IMTA contestants and strives to offer them the best direction possible.

With Teresa's dedication to the industry, IMD has become the successful agency that it is today.
